A lot of the veteran players the Kings brought in proved to be grade A jerks.

Blake came back to play volleyball everyday and make 6 mill a year in a no pressure situation, he provided no leadership (it was Jaroslav Modry who helped out Jack more than anyone), Cloutier blamed everyone but himself for his awful play. Smyth was only concerned about his stats and his next contract. Moreau proved what kind of person he was with the demotion fiasco.

Really makes you appreciate guys like Mitchell and Scuderi.
